The Mason County Reading Council recently held its Young Illustrators’ Contest in conjunction with Reading Week. The winners were recognized at a pizza party held at Point Pleasant Primary School. This year’s theme was“Discovering West Virginia through Reading” and the children were to draw an illustration of a favorite book, a book jacket for their favorite book, or design a poster based on the theme depending on their grade level. There were 41 winners recognized for their artistic abilities from preschool through 12th grade. Pictured are the winners in both the preschool-sixth grade and junior high school.
